Immigration Story - Adobe Spark

"Everyone has a story that matters."

Instructor:  Dr. Anete Vasquez
Instructional Technology Coach:  Helen Maddox

You will take on the role of a genealogist by creating the story of your family’s immigration to the U.S. whether you are here permanently or temporarily. What brought you to the US? If you do not know much about your family’s journey, tell the parts you do know.  You will use Adobe Voice to create this project. You will also address what you can do as a teacher to disrupt commonplace thinking about immigration.
